Hi folks,
    I was wondering if anyone else uses the Chemical Recycler from CBG
Biotech?  We use it for Alcohol, Xylenes and Zinc Formalin. The Alcohol
and Xylenes come out great, however our Zinc Formalin comes out
It does not fix as well or fast as the product that we purchase new. We
sent a sample to CBG to be analysed, and their reply was to say that it
was more pure than the purchased product. Does "more pure" mean as good
as or better? We realize that the recycling takes out the Zinc, so we do
replace it with  a  Zinc concentrate supplied by the company. We have
(Histology) conducted our own  "experiments" using tissues placed in the
recycled product with the Zinc concentrate added and tissues placed in
the recycled product with out the Zinc Concentrate. No real difference
noted. Any insight that can be shared would be greatly appreciated.
